Hello from the Park Hyatt Saadiyat Island!

Sorry for the lack of updates the past two days, as I’ve actually been quite disconnected while on “holiday” in the UAE. Anyway, here are just a few pictures from the new Park Hyatt Saadiyat Island, before I post the trip report upon my return:

Simply a stunning property. Saadiyat Island also has some of the emptiest beaches I’ve seen at any resort, which is awesome.

  1. Lucky you should pay a visit to the Emirates palace hotel managed by kempinsky,well its Burj el arab in another dimension.

  2. I’d imagine these are pictures of a suite? How’s the upgradability for non-celebrity-blogger folks? 😀

  3. Did you drive there or hire a driver? If you hired a driver, how did you do it and what was the cost? Looks like the perfect Winter getaway spot but is there enough to do in the area?

  4. @ JetAway — I hired a driver through the hotel (I was leaving the Grosvenor House Dubai), and it cost about $100. Seemed worthwhile compared to renting a car.

    Saadiyat Island itself is still very much developing, though it’s less than 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi, where there’s lots of sightseeing to do.

  5. @ dmodemd @ Michael — The rate was 1,000AED. Not cheap, but seemed worthwhile to use an expiring suite upgrade.

  6. That’s $272 a night – pretty good value for that spectacular suite – is Dubai a dry country by the way?

  7. @ Michael

    Dubai is one of 7 emirates within the UAE, it’s not a country. Sharjah is the only emirate which is completely dry, the others have alcohol to varying degrees.

  8. Lucky, you have a lot of firstworldproblems, always facing expiring certificates lol. I still don’t understand the big deal about suite upgrades. It’s nice but wouldn’t to out of my way for it. I guess it’s your job to stay at the top of the top though.
